The Water Bearer (2006)

Source: http://planetinfocus.org/festival/water-bearer

32 years of dictatorship left the country of Indonesia underdeveloped and severely deprived economically. But a revolution is underway, shaped from the ground up; leading the way is Quebecer Gilles Raymond.

Gilles Raymond is the water bearer. Along with the men and women of Flores Island, Indonesia, he is helping to develop running water systems one village at a time. Muslims and Catholics work side-by-side as the quest for fresh running water transcends religion and money, establishing a direct democracy and autonomy to the people of the island. This is an open look at how action and results can be achieved through generosity, with the belief that solidarity will lead to transformation.

Pascal Gélinas has directed more than 200 science reports for the layman, including three documentaries in Canada, Costa Rica, and in the Ukraine.
